Mats Zuccarello will be out at least three games for the Minnesota Wild with a lower-body injury.
The forward sustained "bumps and bruises" in a 7-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday, according to coach Bruce Boudreau. He did not travel with the Wild on their three-game road trip this week.
Zuccarello, who agreed to a five-year, $30 million contract as a free agent July 1, has no points in four games this season. He had 40 points (12 goals, 28 assists) in 48 games with the New York Rangers and Dallas Stars last season.
He will not play against the Ottawa Senators on Monday (1 p.m. ET; RDS, TSN5, FS-N, FS-WI, NHL.TV), the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday or the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday.
Following the road trip, the Wild (0-4-0) return home to play the Canadiens on Sunday.
